THe same thing happened in 2010 right before the last CRL. Lots of obesity press coverage...but the drug was shot down ANYWAY! History repeats and if you don't learn from history, you are doomed to repeat it.
I suspect you are wrong on this bit of history. The people in the positions of power have been alerted, and are now preparing to correct the snow job that occured in 2010. In other words, the gig is up for the crooks.
FDA is under heavy pressure from both govt. and media to come up with a solution to the obesity problem in America. It's been on all the networks even spanish speaking TV stations. ADOMM will result in a positive vote to ARNA on 5/10.
